The 30X capability of the HS-10 could solve the issue that Clint has had to deal with the LT-55? Just wondering?
I'm only one user, but I hope the zoom race doesn't crank up like the megapixel race. I personally like the FZ35s 18X for most uses. When I need a little more, the extended zoom does it for me. The Fuji HX-10 looks like a great camera but it pays for all those features and long zoom with much extra weight. I'm quite sure Panasonic will have to join in and up the zoom to keep market share.
As much as I love the FZ35, some of the features of the others really interest me, such as the 10mp burst modes and full HD video. I don't kid myself that I'm through getting cameras. There are other addictions that are worse than cameras, I'm sure.
